Margot Robbie to Produce & Star in Sports Gambling Film ‘Dangerous Odds’

Academy Award nominee Margot Robbie just landed a pretty interesting role that her production company, LuckyChap, will produce and Bold Films will finance Dangerous Odds. This is fresh off of Robbie’s LuckyChap signing a first-look deal with Warner Bros. Robbie will star as Marisa Lankester, a former cleaning-lady turned illegal-sports-betting pro. The movie is based on Lankester’s memoir, Dangerous Odds: My Secret Life Inside an Illegal Billion-Dollar Sports Betting Operation. Bold Films CEO Gary Michael Walters had this to say about Robbie and the role:

“It’s a great character; it’s a female Scarface in the rise of this great criminal operation under the leadership of a very savvy woman. Margot Robbie is an extraordinary actress and couldn’t be hotter right now. She is so versatile and strong with comedy, drama and action — she really is the full package, and that’s rare. She’s built up a great production company with LuckyChap.”
